See this related quotation for the reason:

    It is interesting that *-Ha’* always occurs right after the verb. It
    is not known why Klingon grammarians insist on calling it a rover.
    It was felt best not to argue with Klingon tradition, however, so
    *-Ha’* is here classified as a rover.
